The Mirror has ublished an image that cold have ramifications for our assumptions about early inhabitants of Mar. What clearly is an outline of an elephant's head was captured by NASA's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) which is carried on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter satellite .
The outline may be construed as just a rock a rock formation formed by lava flow from Elysium Planitia, the second largest volcanic region Mars. However, it may. like the Cydnia face photographed during the Viking expeditions in the 70's indicate that Mars was once inhabited by space elephants.
"This proves for once and for all that Mars was once inhabited by giant astroderms. It is obvious that a giant astroderm, perhaps 10km tall was caught in a lava flow and preserved just waiting our discovery" said Julian Crandoffer spokesman for the exobiology unit of the Star Federation (Nuneaton Branch) "I am sure that further research will provide evidence fo claims that mammoths were genetically miniaturised versions of the Mars Astroderm."
I love making up quotes!
